Print Friendly and PDF

  • 1 gallon whole milk (I purchased a gallon for $1.38 in a plastic bag)
  • 3 T. yogurt (I purchased Yoplait single serving French Vanilla)
  • 2 T. vanilla
  • 1 1/2 c. powdered sugar
  1. Boil milk on high (watch it so it doesn't boil over). Take off heat and mix in vanilla and sugar...leave it alone until it's room temperature (90 minutes).
  2. Whisk 1 cup mix with 3 T. yogurt starter (Yoplait single serve French Vanilla); then mix with remaining boiled milk.  Fill four + glass quart sized jars (sterilized) and put on (sterilized) lids. Place into a cooler. Dump 16 cups (1 gallon) warm water into a cooler.  Close the lid and walk away for 4-6 hours.  Finished product will be thicker after refrigerating.
  3. Refrigerate for up to 6 weeks.
